Although I haven't been GPU mining myself, I have been following some GPU miners and they started selling a couple of months ago because of the HW errors due to N increase, huge problems with mining on low memory GPU cards and realization of eventual non-profitability over CPU miners.
They also thought the market is completely theirs and there will be no buyers or sellers after they are gone. So they panicked and collapsed the price by running off. But market should slowly fill up with new participants. If that is going to be the case or no is hard to predict.
So the price movement is not unrelated to N factor change.

Agreed, there was a lot of large dumps after the last few N-factor increases.  People seem to forget that this coin was intended to be 'fairly' mined.  Wasn't the motto on the yacoin.org page 'wither you have a processor or a 5770 graphics card, you can still mine this coin.'  Well I'm proud to say my i7 and my 5770 are getting the same mining speed today.  And everyone with computer, has a processor, and will continue to be able to mine.  Smiley

btw - nice graph / data above.  Smiley  I too have noticed a huge increase to the number of coins I've been making per day from my processor (also set on low settings).  I think after this next N-increase (in ~4 days), even fewer GPU mining farms will participate.  And I believe soon after (it might take another N-increase or three), we will begin to see the switch from 'mine-and-dump' sellers to 'investors' buyers.

Question to the developers or anyone more tech savvy then me....

I keep reading a lot of cloud mining XPM through cloud servers.  I'm not sure I really understand how it works - but would it be possible to 'cloud mine' YACoin?

Of course. Rent a server, install YAC miner, earn YAC.
Problem is, server fees will most likely exceed  the value of the mined coins.

So, I was kinda bored and made this (hope it will work as intended) Grin
http://yacexplorer.tk/raffle.html

It's a standard cryptocurrency raffle-style lottery where each stake recieves a number of tickets equal to floor(stake). Each ticket has an equal chance of winning. Those tickets are constructed by concatenating a few strings unique to your stake + the server's secret for a given day and then hashing all that. The winner is determined by the ticket with the lowest hash (more detailed explanation on the raffle page). Simple, huh? Cheesy

There is no cut for the lottery operator (me) - the whole pot is given to the winner.

The lottery occurs each day at midnight UTC (server time). Everything is transparent and cryptographically verifiable.

The first lottery draw is in 11 hours from now! Hope it will bring some fun into the YAC community. Smiley

EDIT: Right now there's one participant with 99 tickets and a 25 YAC bonus to the winner (total reward 124 YAC!). Don't let him win, get some tickets!

Hi all,

Guess WindMaster and other big boys dumped their bags too, it's obvious he is not interested anymore too.

I didn't quite dump all of it, and I have some processing power still pointing at it.  Lets just say that if YAC ever pulls a BBQCoin move and resurfaces with a vengeance in the future, I have "enough" YAC to be happy for that occasion.


I have lost a lot more than 2 BTC, and I am ok with that!--as opposed to being not ok with all the BTC I lost in FTC and TRC (So glad to see those crap coins removed from btc-e)

Windmaster left because he was looking for that quick buck as an early investor.

Well, in all fairness, I stepped in to take up development after the "quick buck" phase of YAC was pretty much done.  I bought up far more YAC than I ever mined.  I can certainly empathize with anyone that lost some money, and I'm positive there are people here that lost more than I did.  But I absolutely did lose a whole lot more than 2 BTC worth (by orders of magnitude!).  :-)

People were eager for lots of new features in YAC, I had real-life time limitations this summer that prevented implementing stuff as quickly as would be ideal, so it was time to pass the torch.  It seems YACoin has been in good hands with Joe_Bauers and my choice to turn development over to him was probably the best choice for the coin.

It takes courage to step forward and take over development over an abandoned coin. It's an ungrateful job since somehow people always expect open source deveopers to devote their whole life to software they wouldn't even pay for. No matter how much you could have done alone there would be still people not satisfied and complaining.

I think it takes even more courage to step away once you realized that you couldn't spend the time it would need. A lot of people would rather destroy a project than to admit that they should hand it over to someone else.

My 2 YACs.

New win binaries available (this time with UPNP support) at https://www.dropbox.com/s/pwa2lymjl6igh6q/yacoin-cc-latest.zip
It's a a snapshot of Joe's git master branch, along with my coin control changes and whatnot. It merged without issues, so hopefully it'll work.
Took me more than 5 hours, got a terrible headache from that windoze crap Undecided
Also, I've made a compiling write-up for wannabe builders, available here: https://github.com/saironiq/yacoin-cc/blob/master/WIN_BUILD_INSTRUCTIONS.txt
Here's hoping I won't accidentaly delete the build VM again...
